Ideally situated only 2 Km from the hamlet of Monticchiello this imposing detached villa is surrounded by the spectacular landscape of the Val d’Orcia. The property has been carefully restored to create a Tuscan residence of exceptional character. The traditional style interiors are comfortably furnished and the property benefits from a fully equipped chefs kitchen, pizza oven, satellite TV, wi-fi and air-con. The extensive lawn is ideal for children to play and the beautiful swimming pool is framed with pots with geraniums, wild roses, lavender and rosemary. Cook service available
Many original features were maintained in the restoration of Villa Monticchiello. Spacious rooms with wooden-beamed ceilings open to the most beautiful views of the valley, with wheat fields, olive groves and cypress trees.
The traditional structure of the farmhouse was also maintained and the villa is divided into two independent units: the ground level, once the stables, which can accommodate ten people, and the top level, where the peasants used to live, which sleeps four more people. As a result, this villa is the perfect setting for family reunions or groups of friends looking for an “oasis” of tranquillity, surrounded by art and culture.
On the ground floor there is a fully equipped chef's kitchen (fridge with freezer, oven, microwave oven, kettle, 5 rings cooker, dishwasher); a huge living-dining room with double doors opening to the front patio and to the back garden.
In the smaller living room there is a large stone fireplace surrounded by wide red sofas spreading a warm and cosy atmosphere. Five spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms complete the remaining space on this floor.
A stone external staircase leads to the upper floor unit; four breathtaking arched windows overlook the valley and the huge oak tree in front of the house, creating an open and dynamic space. Another large stone fireplace offers an ideal retreat for afternoon reading.
A fully equipped kitchen will appeal to those who love cooking, and the vistas and plantings from the many windows are very pleasing to the eye.
The extensive lawn provides a beautiful open space with unrestricted views of the surrounding valley
The covered dining space with fireplace, pizza oven, barbeque, table and chairs will let guests enjoy unforgettable Tuscan sunsets.
A laundry room with washing-machine, hangers, ironing board and iron is available for the guests of the villa. The house is equipped with satellite TV, telephone, air conditioning and central heating. Extra cleaning and a cook can be arranged at an additional cost.
